I have bought a Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25 ( Model May 2010 ). Have noticed that the fan switches on and off frequently - even after a short drive in cool ambient temperatures. Is this normal ?

Hello,
The problem you are experiencing with your car is as a result of the fact that the fuse which supplies power to the fan from the main source(battery) is working eppileptically which means its failing in discharging power.

1.The solution is to open the fuse box and replace the fuse which controls the fan.
2.If the problem persists it means the problem is from the relay switch,which means the relay switch has to be replaced.

Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya.

A non functioning cooling fan would, not switch on. Normally the mechanical thermostat is pushing the temperature to working temperature and then opening so that the cooler water can come trough the engine. as the Fiesta have a single core radiator it will heat up fast and cool down fast. The rapped heating of the radiator activate the electronic switch for the fan and it switches the fan on. this is normal for cars with single core radiators.

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 After switching off the ignition, even after very short journeys the radiator fan motor continues to operate for up to 1 minute, is this normal, it never did it before, your help...


the temp sensor is right at the top of the head,so if the engine gets up to running temp (even though the rad is cool)it thinks it has a hot spot,so the fan comes on for a minute.then as the "hotspot "goes,the fan switches off.its not a problem unless the fan stays on,then change the sensor.

The orange engine light is flashing intermittently and its driving very lumpy


Hi, my dad has just bought a ford fiesta 2003 on sunday. His engine light came up yesterday and is continually on. He took it to a garage today and they said it was the catalyst converter. It costs £300-£400 for a new one. Its to do with the emissions the car is giving out.

Fitting brake light - fiesta zetec


There is also a push in socket at the top of the light and a clip at the bottom. When the screws are all undone insert a flat screw driver under the light fitting about 4 inches from the top (remember to use a cloth under the edge of the screwdriver to avoid marking the paintwork) you should be able to push it out now.
